3 emerging handbag trends to watch

There are so many handbag trends right now! Instead of one, stand-out IT bag trend, the world of handbags is having a wild, wild west moment! This means there is a style for every taste on the fashion radar; and I am here for it!

A few weeks ago I shared with you my favorite handbag trends for summer 2020, now, I want to visit three emerging handbag trends to watch, and to covet this year.

Pillow Bags

Pillow Bags are a hot new trend in handbags, and it is very inviting! Who isn’t attracted to something soft and squishy? Pillow bags are simple, classic handbags which are stuffed. You may see them in the form of extra-large quilted designs, or simple, puffy designs. While this design has been done before, it seems to be more mainstream this time around. This means puffy pillow bags are proving to be a hot emerging trend right now. If you want to hop on the train before it’s full, snap up a pillow bag you can not only store your stuff inside, but use as a pillow for a nap too.

Pastel Bags (retro ‘60’s vibes)

 

The 1960’s were all about pastel suits with matching pillbox hats and bags. Those bags are back! Right now, designers are introducing pastel bags in structured silhouettes to wear this summer, as well as into the fall season. You can find a pastel bag in your favorite hue; there is no wrong color. This is a great way to freshen up your look; so store your neutral or black bag. Lighten up, and go pastel!

Hobo Bags

 

OK, so I already mentioned hobo bags in my summer handbag trend post, but it really needs more attention. Hobo bags have been trying to happen for the past decade; and this might actually be their chance for a comeback! While my wallet gets lost inside of a hobo bag, they do offer a soft and comfortable silhouette which is easy to carry around. So if you don’t need to constantly reach for something, hobo bags could be your thing.

What do you think of these three emerging handbag trends? Will you be rocking any of them? I definitely want to invest in a pastel bag; and the pillow bags have caught my eye too. Although I am not a huge hobo bag fan, I can never say never to a bag style. Who knows, I might convert to the hobo bag side! It’s hard for me to say no to a handbag 😉

Thanks for stopping by!

The return of the hobo handbag for spring 2017

hobo handbags spring 2017

From top left: black grommet hobo handbag (designer must-have!) / blush hobo handbag (NYFW designer under $400) / denim hobo handbag (fabulous way to rock spring’s denim trend) / beige suede hobo (hot IT bag designer) / ivory hobo handbag (rock the logo trend with a classic closet staple under $500) / turquoise hobo handbag (classic designer closet staple) / navy structured hobo with tassel (cult favorite in the fashion world) / Gucci hobo handbag (everything Gucci is hot right now! under $2000)

Hobo handbags for spring 2017 are an emerging trend which is not getting enough press! The hobo has been a quiet, emerging trend over the past few seasons which we noticed splashed all over the fall 2017 runways in New York last month. While those were fall runways, hobo handbags had already graced the spring 2017 runways back in September; so this trend is positioning itself to unseat the current satchel trend, shoulder bag trend, and mini bag trend.

Last month in New York, designers favored soft and slouchy handbags; many of which were hobo handbags. The hobo is a casual closet staple, although, it has not enjoyed it’s place in handbag society over the past decade. For spring 2017, designers are including at least one hobo handbag style in their warm weather line-up, this makes the hobo handbag a fabulous up-and-coming bag to invest in now.

Most of us have already invested in fabulous satchels over the past few years. The shoulder bag, or saddle bag trend, is a classic style which most have us already have in our closets. In addition, we seem to all have at least one mini bag. While mini bags are a hot trend, they have held this position for a few years now. The mini bag cannot last forever. It will eventually fall victim to the IT bag style curse of being “so last season.” If you want to invest your dollars wisely in a casual, everyday handbag, the hobo is your best best.

For investment purposes this season, satchels and shoulder bags are good bets to have staying power over the next few years. If you want to invest in something at the beginning of the bell curve, look for a soft and slouchy hobo handbag for spring 2017.

I love hobo handbags! There is something luxurious about a soft and slouchy hobo. In addition to a scrumptious hobo, a structured hobo has it’s place in every woman’s closet too. The structured hobo handbag is easy to wear casually, at the office, and out to dinner; while the slouchy hobo is more of a weekend bag. The hobo handbag at the top of my wish list is this beauty online here. For a structured hobo handbag, I have my eyes on this one in blush.

What do you think of the hobo handbag for spring 2017? Is this a handbag trend you are excited about? Are you more of a slouchy hobo, or a structured hobo, kind of gal?

I found a few fabulous hobo handbags for spring 2017 around the web, and assembled them into the shopping widget below. There is a mix of bags under $500, and over $1000. Something for everyone! Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
